First Try at Cresent Nebula - NGC 6888


Recommended Posts

I tried this object last year and it was a disaster as my guiding was all over the place. Had another over the last 2 days and the results are much better.

Ha 9 x 900s, RGB to follow. I am not sure what exposure I should use for this object under moderate LP skies, unfortunately there is a fullish moon out as well, so I might not be able to get a lot of success. The most I will be able to get is around 180s for Red (binx2) before it saturates to the right of the histogram,

I think I overdid the noise reduction. As always any advice is most welcome.
